I think the stepper motors on my old Emco CNC mill are 5-phase motors. Those are REALLY old devices and are usually replaced by modern steppers so current devices can drive them.

actually i am new to this stuff and i am physics student not engg student? if you guys have answer how can i then tell me

To drive a 5-phase stepper motor, either buy a 5-phase stepper driver, or make one.

Do you mean a 5-phase motor. or a 5-wire motor (such as a 28BYJ-48)?

"pk523pb" and this is 5 phase

That means 5 separate windings.

For a motor as ridiculously expensive as that one, you can afford to buy the correct five phase driver.
